Ebenal impresses in Asia Formula Renault season opener with double podium finishes for PS Racing

 
ZHUHAI, China - March 27, 2014 - PRLog -- Zhuhai International Circuit –

This past weekend, Canadian Maxx Ebenal took home double trophies for PS Racing [http://www.psracing.com] in Asia Formula Renault’s highest-level International Class, establishing himself as one of 2014’s new ‘rising star’ AFR drivers in his debut weekend for the series.

In his first time ever qualifying for AFR on Saturday morning under excellent weather conditions and packed grandstands of over 20,000 fans, Ebenal managed to qualify P4 for race one, and P3 for race two.

In Saturday afternoon’s Race One, televised live all around Asia, Ebenal did his first ‘standing start’ against experienced top AFR drivers. Despite dropping back a couple of positions on the start against the seasoned veterans, Ebenal made a brilliant pass in the Turn 11 hairpin on one of the last laps to take 3rd on the International Podium.

In Sunday’s Race Two, Ebenal got off to a fantastic start and immediately moved into P2, later dropping back to P4 in the second lap but keeping up the pace to take to the podium once again for 3rd in the International Class.

Despite an incredible AFR season debut for Maxx Ebenal, who hails from Regina, Saskatchewan, the Canadian driver remains typically low-key and is focusing not only on going for the series Champion trophy, but also to give something back - in each race he is prominently promoting www.braintumorkids.org and www.multichannel.net to bring more attention and funding to the children’s charity after his own health challenges, which Ebenal himself had to battle, as well as sponsorship via prominent marketing group MultiChannel.net.

Maxx’s next race weekend will be at the world-famous Sepang International F1 Circuit on May 9-11. Stay tuned for updates and read more about Maxx Ebenal’s fight to the top and charity promotion at www.maxxspeed.ca.
